"You know what I haven't seen in about a week?", I asked my husband.
"No, but you're going to tell me anyway."
This launched an all out search and rescue program. It was suggested that I'd scooped them up and threw them away with trash. I came into the kitchen to find my husband looking into the pantry behind cans and in the refrigerator - for my keys. They had apparently sprouted legs and left the country. ( And NO, I did NOT put my keys in the fridge!) But I had to agree, I do manage to do some crazy things.
Now would be the time to mention the real problem; there is only one house key (we moved in a few weeks ago and the extra key we had made was made incorrectly) and that key was on my ring of missing keys. After sending an email to the landlord, I was gently prompted to go take some time to myself and go to my favorite places; Michael's crafts and Barnes & Noble bookstore. I promised his keys would indeed make the return trip home.
I love the bookstore. I just pulled up a seat on the floor and began pouring through books (I call it 'feeding my mind'). I stumbled across this book on polymer clay and fell in love. It has so many beautiful designs in it I knew I just had to have it.
Lately I've been more and more interested in polymer clay, as it affords more creativity - you can make anything your want; beads, animals, whatever. I've messed with this medium in the past and made a couple of things;
Anyway, expect to see some items in clay soon as I try my hand at some of the most beautiful things in this book. Not to mention other inspiration I've found as well. Oh and by the way, I got a text msg from my husband while I was indulging myself at the bookstore - he found my keys. Buried in his recliner chair under the cushion. Right where I left 'em. Before he sat on them without noticing. Aaahhhh, the world is once again as it should be.
